You may know author Chuck Palahniuk as the author of Fight Club… but we won’t talk about that.
Nevertheless, I expected Survivor to be an odd novel – and on that, it did not disappoint. Survivor is a novel told in the first-person as the main character recites his story for the black box of the commercial airplane he’s hijacked is running out of fuel. Tender Branson is the last remaining survivor of a Creedish death cult from Nebraska. Like any death cult, the rituals, beliefs, and suicides of the cult are extremely odd.
As Tender recounts his bizarre upbringing and belief system, I was mostly just weirded out by the story.
